Whether you’re grilling, tossing, sautéing or baking your favorite summer dishes—or all of the above—you can give them a serious upgrade by using top-quality extra virgin olive oil.
Yes, you can cook with it. The idea that you can’t is a myth; people have been cooking with olive oil successfully for centuries. It’s naturally produced, not subjected to several processing treatments like refined oils, so extra virgin olive oil retains protective antioxidants that protect it from breaking down when heated.
And you can feel really good about buying olive oil from California, which holds itself to the highest quality standards. Our favorite: Cobram Estate. They use a carefully selected blend of 100% California olives, so it has unparalleled flavor. And it’s also super-loaded with polyphenols, antioxidants that boost heart health and fight inflammation. So it tastes amazing and it’s great for you.
Pro tip: Fresh olive oil tastes the best, so be sure to look for the harvest date on the bottle and use it within 18 months of harvest.
Now for the kicker: Cobram Estate is offering Clean Plates readers a special deal. Sign up and they’ll send you a coupon—do it now, because the first 500 people get a free bottle. (If you don’t make it, no worries—you still get $5 off.)
